About me

I am a story teller. Sometimes the stories are poetic and melancholic, sometimes they are humorous. I always seek for the most powerful image, in color and composition. My characters are often thoughtful, sometimes cheerful and frequently irritated. Mostly these are animals, those are the most fun to draw, but sometimes a human child is more appropriate for the story I want to tell. Some of the illustrations are very child oriented, but most often they are created with an adult mind and perspective. I think it makes them stronger.

genre : Book, Character Design, Fiction, Non-Fiction
